Information Sheet – "Iwi versus Multi Tribal"



This paper makes a case for the rights of inclusion of urban Maori groupings (where members do not specifically whakapapa or interact with traditional tribal groups), Waipareira and Hoani Waititi Marae. The author argues that the historical and political realities that have resulted in the 'Waipareira Way' are a legitimate and powerful representative body of multi tribalism.
